Job For A Cowboy – Ruination lyrics

The earth slowly rots into a malignant tumor,
Breeding no life for the future of the world
In a wake of a nuclear war bodies rise from the fractured and decomposing fields of abandonment.
Their bodies and faces mutated and disfigured,
Still breathing through their brimful lungs
They limp and crawl across the ruins they once claimed on a leisurely ongoing march.
Their flesh still burns, the skin blackens
And embers into the dimming air

    "The earth slowly rots into a malignant tumor... in wake of a nuclear war." in which it explains of a scene where a nuclear war as already happened and that the people damaged by the nuclear bombs are rotting and growing malignant tumor's on their bodies from the radioactive chemicals that come from the bomb after the explosion. "Bodies rise from the fractured and decomposing fields of abandonment." Which means the bodies of those who survived the war are now rising from the ruins and are mutated from the destructive radioactive waves that came from the bomb as they limp and crawl across the ruins. Basically talking about the after math of a nuclear war and the destruction it does to people afterwards.
